Create a good impression

The Commercial-News

---- — Beginning Monday, the Danville community and Danville Area Community College will serve as hosts to hundreds of visitors attending the National Junior College Athletic Association’s Men’s Division II Basketball Tournament.

Those visitors will be spending some time in the area, not just at Mary Miller gym on the DACC campus. What they see, hear and experience will form an impression of our community that they will take back with them to their homes.

For the most part, that’s a good thing. There always are exceptions, but for the most part it’s easy to find helpful sales personnel or friendly clerks at local businesses.

Teams, support staffs and fans will make their way to Danville from Phoenix, Ariz., to Newark, N.J., and 10 other cities in between. Help the city maintain its outstanding reputation as hosts for the NJCAA Men’s Division II tournament. Make sure the people you meet next week feel welcome.
